Now more than ever there is a strong call-to-action to press forward and accelerate gender parity. Please join me to #PressforProgress to mark International Women’s Day on Monday 5 March 2018.
The Dean, Professor Ian Greer, will open the event and Vice-President for Social Responsibility, Professor James Thompson will introduce the award winning British scientist and author, Angela Saini. Angela will be discussing gender stereotypes, conditioned perception and her recently published book ‘Inferior – How Science Got Women Wrong – and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story’.
Following a networking lunch, Angela’s talk will take place 1:00pm – 2:00pm in Lecture Theatre B, University Place. This will be followed by three parallel workshops on sexual harassment in the workplace, personal impact and resilience.
12 noon-1:00pm: Registration and networking lunch
1:00pm-2:00pm: Guest Speaker – Angela Saini
